    When LA’s vampires, witches, and werewolves make a mess, they call Scarlett Bernard to clean it up. Her ability as a null erases all magical traces from anything — or anyone — that comes within ten feet of her, and keeps humans in the dark about the city’s paranormal activity. One night when she’s called to a grisly crime scene, Scarlett is spied by the all-too-human LAPD cop Jesse Cruz, who strikes up a deal with her: he’ll keep quiet about the supernatural underworld if she helps him crack the case. She agrees, but the city’s chief vampire, Dash, starts to suspect Scarlett is behind the murders and will reveal all she knows of his shadowy empire. Now it’ll take more than Scarlett’s unique abilities to clear her name, keep the underworld underground, and track down the real killer.

    Story

    I didn't think there would be much to take me by surprise regarding urban fantasy, but I was taken back, in a good way, by this new kind of character, the "null". Scarlett is indeed a nice addition to the world of paranormal and urban fantasy. The plot is good, the action is fast-paced and all the other characters are well-defined. Also, there is that damn nail-biting cliff-hanger in the end: how did THAT person manage to undergo THAT kind of transformation!?!
    The switch between first-person and third-person narration actually made sense, too bad that Ms. McFadden didn't switch also when narrating: it took me some time to make sense of the story on the beginning of each chapter. On the plus side, she was better with keeping up with Jesse's Spanish accent throughout the story, which is better that in Susannah Sandlin's novels she narrated... Not my favourite story-telling person, but I've heard worse.
    Overall, good start of a new paranormal series. Will be impatiently waiting for the sequel!

    As a null, Scarlett Bernard possesses a rare ability to counteract the supernatural by instantly neutralizing spells and magical forces. For years she has used her gift to scrub crime scenes of any magical traces, helping the powerful paranormal communities of Los Angeles stay hidden. But after LAPD detective Jesse Cruz discovered Scarlett's secret, he made a bargain with her: solve a particularly grisly murder case, and he would stay silent about the city's unearthly underworld.

    I really liked the first book, but I loved-loved-loved the second, although the cliff-hangers at the end are not really my thing.
    I really enjoyed the love-triangle situation and I can't wait to see how it plays out.
    All in all, very high expectations for Hunter's Trail - book 3.

    After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire. Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula.

    LOOOVE this particular depiction of the infamous character as portrayed by Jeaniene Frost! Especially happy since I found out that the story will actually be a trilogy! And I also loved Tavia Gilbert's performance, as usual! For the sake of the argument, however, please have Ms. Gilbert contact a speaker of Romanian (me, for example ;-)), to avoid misspronunciations of words such as "coacaze" or "Targoviste". I don't want to upset anybody, the performance is perfect such as is, it was just a thought... I think actors should do that kind of documentation for every part or book they act/narrate.

    Story

    Again, wonderful British English, but this time seasoned with Scottish and bits of Cockney. Very entertaining!
    As opposed to Firelight, there is much more action in this book, along with an array of interesting supernatural creatures, mistery and intrigue and the end is somewhat unexpected. Everything I could hope for in a book!
    I very much liked Ian Northrup, although I didn't (probably should have) expect it from the first book. Daisy and I didn't click as much...
    My expectations grow higher by the minute for this series. Can't wait for Winterblaze!

    What made the experience of listening to Firelight the most enjoyable?

    aah... British English... sooo aristocratic!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was enjoyable enough


    What does Moira Quirk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    definitely, the wonderful accent! I could listen to Ms. Quirk reading a recipe book and still enjoy it!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Victorian romance with a twist

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Wonderful book! Sexy, sassy and extremely humorous! I found myself laughing outloud in the middle of the street numerous times and it was kind of embarassing. Wonderful narration also! Lorelei King is a deep voice that none the less is able to differenciate among the various characters. Highly recommendable! I'm in the middle of
